Some things never change. Its ok if you've got money. Even in the 16th century if you could afford it you had a big house and you had a Long Gallery on an upper floor, often running the length of the building. Then if you were self isolating you could spend the morning pacing up and down the gallery. I tried it with my lounge but it only takes about 10 seconds from one end to the other.

If you walk at average speed (and if I haven't mucked up the maths) your lounge is about 15 yards long, clear away the furniture and you could do some grid sprints
Anyone else getting a bit p***** off with sports stars and celebrities telling us how easy it is to keep fit at home whilst working out in their massive, fully equipped home gyms or running around their estates?
I am not sure the people in the flat below would be too impressed if I ran a marathon on the spot or did a bit of weightlifting in front of the telly.

Weights borrowed from gym. Little circuit in Garden. A long walk Wildlife watching on the days I don't do the Circuit.
I get the lockdown and that footballers are being sensible and are a powerful voice. I just think when Gary Linker says stay at home. I think well yeah coz you've your Gym to work out in. Massive Garden to sit in. Probably mid afternoon go to your cinema room to watch a film. Visit 3 other rooms during the day.
For the last 6 days it's been an 8 mile run with the exception of Monday which ended up at 10 miles. One more 8 mile run at the height of the sunshine this afternoon and then next week is a series of flat out 5Ks.
I'm not eating or drinking anything different than usual apart from the fact that with my daughter being at home and bored there is now a conveyor belt of delicious daily cakes. I've lost one pound in the last week
I’m in the most vulnerable category and under stoppage of leave for 12 weeks 😩 ............30 perimeters of the back garden is 1.2 miles. So twice daily at present hoping to increase as nights get lighter.
What are the main challenges facing the new government? You mean apart from a total lack of political nous and knowledge of the real world? The central problem is the lack of true radicalism. When this country was great, we didn't have the welfare state, a National Health Service or free education. What we did have was an empire, no income tax and a fucking big navy. You don't need a PhD to work it out, do you?
Walking with wife and kids every lunchtime. Lucky we have a lake near us . I'm working from home most days and busier than have ever been so is a nice break to get some air with the kids. Both of us are key workers so laid off isnt (fortunately) a possibility and my heart goes out to those of you that are in that boat . Staying healthy and exercising are critical, would be easy to resort to the biscuit tin and alcohol every day and resisting that as much as I can.
